Lime says that its application with the city calls for six times as many electric scooters as it deposited on Indianapolis streets in June. It's also weighing whether to offer its electric-powered bikes.
An Indianapolis City-Council committee on Thursday evening voted to regulate businesses that rent out the dockless electric scooters that have caught on quickly since popping up around the city in the past two weeks.
City code enforcement officials sent the company a letter asking them to halt their service for 30 days while the city works out a regulatory scheme that would tackle dockless bike and scooter sharing.
The project will eliminate three of the five existing travel lanes from 116th Street to Main Street, add roundabouts at intersections, install a landscape median through the corridor and put multipurpose paths on both sides of the road.
